HySpex SWIR-384
The HySpex SWIR-384 hyperspectral camera is developed for field, laboratory, and airborne applications.
The state of the art MCT sensor with cooling down to 150K yields low background noise, high dynamic range, and exceptional SNR levels. With a max frame rate of 400 fps, combined with an aberration-corrected optical system with high optical throughput (f/2), the data quality, speed, and sensitivity is truly state of the art.
A wide range of close-up lenses allows the use of the camera at working distances ranging from a few centimeters with a spatial resolution of 53 ?m to infinity e.g. airborne remote sensing.

    Great data and support, OK hardware and ease of use

    The HySpex SWIR 384 camera offers a broad spectral range of 950 nm to 2500 nm, allowing for high quality imaging of a wide variety of samples. The camera provides excellent image quality, and it comes with Ground Software that enables users to control the imaging process, adjust lights, and see images live. The software is free and user friendly, making it easy to use for a range of applications. However, it’s important to note that the Ground software does not perform white and dark calibration, nor data analysis. For these purposes, a separate software needs to be purchased.

    We purchased this shortwave infrared (SWIR) hyperspectral imaging camera in 2019. Since then, the camera has broken a few times, mainly failing to reduce the temperature of the camera to the operating temperature. HySpex attributed this to the part supplier (which I believe is right). While a permanent repair is yet to be found, HySpex’s customer service was exceptionally good and did their best to keep my lab going. They once sent a technician from Norway (to Australia) to service the camera and increase its lifespan until they find a permanent repair.

    In terms of application ease, the camera holder benchtop lit is bulky, and adjusting the camera focus is done physically by moving the camera up and down rather than using an adjustable lens or a powered camera tower. Adjusting the camera height is an inconvenience, as we need to turn a handle ten of times to move it up and down a few centimetres. Adding to that, the handle is placed at the top of the camera tower. Placing the camera on the bench means that the tower is somewhere close to the ceiling, and we need to have a ladder to adjust the camera height.

    There are a few options for lenses to choose from. I am using a 30 cm lens, which stands 30 cm above the samples and measures 10 cm width of the stage. I also have a “microscopic lens.” This lens does not actually magnify anything, but the pixel size is very fine (ca. 0.05 mm). The “microscopic lens” measures the 2 cm width of the stage. There is a 1 m lese that measures up to 30 cm width. The Hyspex SWIR 384 measures 384 pixel per line.

    Furthermore, because the camera offers a broad spectral range with relatively high spectral resolution (ca. 5.45 nm), leading to measuring 288 wavelengths, the imaging speed is not very high (yet good for research). As far as I am aware, it’s not possible to turn off some wavelengths to increase the imaging speed. This is something you need to consider if imaging speed is important for your application. This is not a disadvantage for me since I use it for research (chemometrics, food quality monitoring, classification, non destructive analysis), and I prioritise better quality data over faster imaging speed.

    Overall, I am very happy with the quality of the images and the customer service, and I think the HySpex SWIR 384 is an excellent option for my applications (research). It’s important to consider the drawbacks, such as the inconvenience of adjusting the camera height and its high price. However, the excellent image quality, broad spectral range, and HySpex’s exceptional customer service make it a worthwhile investment for many applications.

I recommend HySpex improve the entire setup and make it more user-friendly. For example, the moving stage is very bulky, and having a long tower makes it impossible to change the height of the camera. It would be great if the height-adjusting handle of the hyperspectral imaging camera was placed on the side of the tower instead of at the top, or if it was motorized. Having adjustable lenses would help too if it does not reduce the data quality.

It is our most popular imager for remote sensing applications. The Pika L can be used in our airborne, laboratory, and outdoor hyperspectral systems, as well as standalone or integrated into your system.Specim FX10 Specim FX10 is a line-scan hyperspectral camera that operates in the visible and near-infrared (VNIR) region. It is an excellent tool for industrial and scientific applications. The Specim FX10 operates in the 400-1000 nm region, and the color-optimized Specim FX10c in the 400-780 nm region.Pika XC2 400 - 1000 nm High-Precision VNIR The Pika XC2 is a high-resolution hyperspectral camera that covers the Visible + Near-Infrared (VNIR) spectral range. The Pika XC2 has high spatial resolution, best in-class spectral resolution, and excellent imaging quality. Popular in VNIR laboratory applications.
